In the series, Lauren Caspian (Zach Woods) is NPR’s third most popular host. He’s a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me. He’s also a stop-motion puppet.

In the Know

Each episode follows the making of an episode of Lauren’s show In the Know, in which Lauren conducts in-depth interviews with real-world human guests. Lauren collaborates with a diverse crew of NPR staff. They are also puppets and nimrods.

The voice cast also includes Caitlin Reilly as Fabian, a researcher and fact-checker; Charlie Bushnell as Chase, a college intern; J. Smith-Cameron as Barb, a co-executive producer of In the Know; Carl Tart as Carl, a sound engineer; and Mike Judge as Sandy, the culture critic.

In the Know

“We love public radio. It’s engaging and comforting. But it also reflects aspects of ourselves that we’re embarrassed by. Which is why we created a show about an NPR host who is, sadly, an only slightly exaggerated version of ourselves,” said creator, showrunner, executive producer, and star Zach Woods and creator, showrunner, and executive producer Brandon Gardner.

“We’re privileged, well-intentioned, guilty hypocrites. We buy ethically sourced dog treats and have them delivered by people who are penalized for bathroom breaks. We put ‘No Justice, No Peace’ signs next to our home security lawn decals. We’re sanctimonious doofuses who should be ridiculed more.”

In the Know

“As we get more isolated in our respective echo chambers, we’re desperate to connect with people who are different from us through honest conversation and humor. We try to provide both on the show. (And even if you think our comedy is literal trash, we hope you’ll enjoy the gorgeous animation from the stop-motion geniuses at ShadowMachine.)

“We want this show to start funny, scary, friendly conversations. We want to portray people who are possibly irredeemable but hopefully still loveable. And at the center of all of this is a frail, overconfident male puppet with a woman’s name: Lauren Caspian.”
